    African IP Addresses

    Does anyone by any chance know the IP address ranges for African IP's? A customer has been getting a lot of scam mail from Nigerian scammers and requested that these IP's not be allowed for him. Your help is highly appreciated, thanks.

    have your customer send you the header info from the emails and use the IP from there. Trace it first to see if its from Africa

    FYI : Most of those scam mails (Nigerian or otherwise) originate from USA based IP addresses since they are generally sent from free email providers or open proxy servers.
